  1. So is the thinking that the age of the domain is less a function of the create date and more a function of when Google first crawled it? I've got URLs that are over 10 years old, based on creation date, but have do not show in the Web Archives until my most recent bringing them to life. Learn something every day. Just waiting to learn something that impacts positively! LOL! Thanks, RM
